NAME: Olivia Rodrigo
HOW IT STARTED:
Despite growing up in a family with no musicians, Rodrigo had a unique passion and love for music at a young age. At the age of just 5 years old, her parents took her to a local voice instructor who was impressed with her talent, so impressed that she helped guide her career by signing Rodrigo up for talent shows and public performances. Eventually by the age of 9, Rodrigo took on piano lessons which helped her learn the art of songwriting and that led to her creating her own music. Olivia first gained recognition as a lead actress in Disney TV’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and Bizaardvark .
HOW IT’S GOING:
Today, Olivia Rodrigo has held 2021’s top debut album and has been nominated for 7 Grammys and has won 3 out of the 7 nominations. She also has been nominated for Spotify’s best new artist with a total of 5.9 billion streams of her very first self-written album “Sour” in 2021.
